To protect your container garden from squirrels, consider planting squirrel-resistant plants such as lavender, geraniums, and marigolds. These can help when planted among your garden. Additionally, use mesh or netting to cover your containers, and try commercial repellents or motion-activated sprinklers to deter squirrels. Replacing an existing bird feeder with a squirrel-proof one can also help divert the squirrels' attention. Be prepared for trial and error, as finding the most effective solution may require some experimentation.
